    I see Hasler didn’t waste any time dropping AFB, he won’t be at the club next year so why pick him ? Better to try someone who will. Yet we still keep selecting Aitken every week since he has signed elsewhere rather than play people who will be with us next year. I don’t understand the logic ???

    Agree possum , that is the common sense approach that the NRL should set for the younger players. But unfortunately the money clubs must have all the players that they desire , leaving the less unfortunate club sweet f##k all .

    In fact the clubs who finances are not on par with their more fancied rivals are left to fight over the dregs . Odd when you think about it , as the salary cap is the same for all 16 teams ?

    While I’d love to see him dropped, he is not exactly burning bridges on his way out and has actually been in career best form (which is why I’m not unhappy he’s leaving, that’s as good as it gets). I do think he deserves to see out the season if fit, even though I’m not his biggest fan. I just hope JP remembers how to catch a pass with Wiliame in this week.

    I think Morgan Boyle. I am not a big Manly fan so dont take much notice of their sides but read he had dropped AFB.

    i guess he’s not exactly dropping AFB for a debutante. If it was Boyle he’s already had exposure to NRL - 44 games total and 6 this season.

    If we are talking about dropping Aitken for not being here we should also be dropping Frizz and now possibly Host.

    AFB is a social misfit but he has the mongrel, size and power we need.

    Hate myself for suggesting it.

    Shows desperation has set in.

    Having a criminal record for assaulting your partner is more than being a “social misfit”..

    That’s being a social f**kwit..

    How about at least putting in KPIs in contracts like a lot of employees
    Problem is these days a lot of players want all the money and no responsibilities

    Manly team mates suggesting it's about money and not family.

    He was never an option for us, apart from the fact we sacked him a few years ago Manly said they would not release him to a Sydney team.

    If I had to take into consideration their past crimes, I would choose AFB over Packer all day long.

    Whilst violence is never a winning scenario, you’d pick beating up a woman vs beating up a man as being more acceptable?

    You may want to re-think that answer.

    When you add to that one occurred in a public place vs the other in the supposed safety of your own home, I really do hope you reconsider.

    We should not release Saab to a team within a reasonable drive of his house too.
